A plain white top – sleeveless is easiest. Look for linen or cotton. You don’t want the top to be stretch
Scissors, thread and needle
Some beautiful lace - about 50cm
Small pearl beads
  • How to sew a lace top. Turn A Plain White Top Into A Lacy Showstopper - Step 1
    Step 1

    Lay your top flat, with the side seams at the very edges.
    Use the top as a template to cut the lace – leave a little extra on the sides to allow sewing space. If the top is on the cropped side (mine is) cut the bottom edge a little lower. I used four extra rows of the lace detail.
